JJ comes through, yet once again!

JJ, a long time forum member managed to save up some extra cash and made a donation to the charity for the poor out on Samar. The charity, depending all on donations, funds minor renovations or improvements for schools, pays school fees for those kids who are not able and keeps rice and basic staples on hand for those with no food and show up at the charity building.

As the charity is very small and depends on the generosity of people like JJ or Sir Tom and others to keep working, used JJ's donation to buy rice and basic food supplies and then gave the food to several widows and families with small kids and little to eat. Pictures were taken showing the food donations, multiple proposals of marriage for JJ from the widows were passed along, (screened by JJ's wife and then rejected for clerical errors) and together, they survive for another day. Smiling and not complaining...

Interestingly, these widows range in age from mid 60s to mid 70s, each applied locally for SSS or whatever government assistance program there is, and each were rejected as not old enough. Between elections, there is very little government assistance so if they do not work or beg for money, they very well may not eat that day. 

Thanks again JJ! (School supply drive in the 1st week of June, save the date...)

Yes nice work JJ. My guess is the majority of forum member also do their own charity work. For us we have supporting some elderly people and school kids whom other wise would be unable to attend.

We do not give to the many charities where we live, just hands on, we know exactly where our small assistance goes and able monitor  same.
